Aston Martin is taking inspiration from its best customer, James Bond, with its latest project: a deep sea submarine worthy of 007 himself.
An established name in the British luxury sports car market, Aston Martin has already begun investing in flying cars so it makes sense that the company would one day take to the sea.
Working in collaboration with Triton Submarines, Aston Martin has been busy putting together plans for a sophisticated deep-water vehicle that looks like it’s been plucked straight out of a Bond movie.
It’s all part of the company’s ongoing “Project Neptune” which will see Aston Martin head up the development of a “limited edition vehicle” that has been designed with “researchers, explorers and superyacht owners” in mind.
And while no price tag is yet attached, the fact it has been designed for explorers and superyacht owners alone suggests it’s likely to be a lot.
From the looks of the initial design sketches, it looks like it could serve a fair few secret agents well too, with the sub’s aerodynamic design and sleek look perfect for anyone wanting to do a little underwater detective work a la Thunderball.
Plans for the vehicle remain vague, but reports suggest it could yet feature in Bond’s next outing – a film that could yet mark Craig’s final turn as the titular secret agent.
Plans for the new movie remain sketchy, though it is thought that Christoph Waltz will return as Blofeld alongside another major villain.
Though some of these plans have been hinted at, any official details remain sketchy at best, other than the fact Craig is returning alongside Waltz and possibly even Dave Bautista.
